Product Review (submitted on November 2, 2012):
I found this website during a web search for the best hearing device for my 84 year old grandfather. He broke his old device, which was an old generation analog Siemens device, and due to his advanced Parkinsons, he was simply not able to go to doctor´s appointments necessary to order a new device the traditional route. When I found out it was possible to purchase a state-of-the-art device directly without any doctor visits, I decided to go for it. Besides, the price offered here would only buy us a very basic Siemens model the traditional way.
So we ordered the device, and once it arrived, we assembled it with the attached ear tubes and ear tips. When my grandfather first wore the device, he said he could not really hear anything, and the device was make horrible noises. I was devastated at first, but after a couple of experiments, we figured out the problem was with the ear tips. They were simply too small for his (very large) ears. Once we connected the device to his old custom made ear mold, my grandfather could suddenly hear us clearly.
After a few days he got used to the new digital device, which I think feels a little different from analog devices, he said it was the best device he had ever had.
We were able to have conversations with him again, which was wonderful.
So thank you, CenturyHearingAids!
